Short answer: no
Long answer: yes, but it is not easy and may cause some unexpected
You need to install them to different prefixes and it probably will fail if
one of them is in a 'system' location (or, for that matter in the same
location as gtk).
For instance, I have 4.2 in /opt/lunar/xfce4 and svn version in /opt/xfce4-cvs
(hmm, that needs a name change ;-).
Then you should set some variables to make use of one or the other. This works
export PATH PKG_CONFIG_PATH LD_LIBRARY_PATH
No guarantees, and if it breaks you get to keep the pieces ;-)
